Much of my art is about gardening. I am also very interested in functional ware. I enjoy using pottery that has weight and texture that some manufactured pieces don't have. I like the feel of the piece in my hand. I have used the hand building method to make these goblets. That means that the wheel was not used and all these pieces started from a slab of clay that I textured. These are 6.5" hgt.
These goblets are what I enjoy drinking wine from. One uses many senses sipping wine; smell, taste, judging the color. I already know there are legs on the sides of the goblet, I don't need to see those. I like the modest weight of the goblet and the texture too. Hgt 5".
It is fun to think of different designs that fit your hand. I like a thick stem sometimes.
More thick stemmed style. I like the glaze sinking into the deeper parts of the texture. Hgt 6"
